CLOW BECK ECO CENTRE
- Clervaux Trust works with young people who are experiencing difficulties with their educational experience through a practical skills curriculum on the land and using craftwork. We have a 100 acre site and plan to develop a biodynamic farm with market garden and animals. Much of the development work is in the very early stages and help with building it all up would be very gratefully received. The trust also opened a bakery and cafe in Darlington centre which is supplied by food and produce from Clow Beck Eco Centre. We aim to make the people of Darlington as healthy as possible with access to great organic and biodynamic food, as well as giving young people an understanding of life cycles and processes. Clow Beck Eco Centre has a mix of fields, woodlands, rivers, and boggy areas in a lovely part of North Yorkshire. There may well be other courses running over the summer as well so things could either be quite active at times and sleepy at other moments.
- Volunteers will work on various tasks such as assisting in the gardens and in the farm, looking after the animals, painting internal and external walls walls around the site, erecting a fence in the front field, preparing and cooking food in the kitchen. There is plenty to do. It will be quite physical and you could pick up some new skills or hone old ones
- Volunteers will be camping at the Clervaux Fold Farm (please bring your own tent). There is a shower and compost toilet block and large kitchen and dining area. Volunteers will be sharing this during the day with whoever is on site but will have it only to themselves in the evening.
- Clow Beck Eco Centre is 6,5 km from Darlington and 9,5 km from Scotch Corner. It is right by the River Tees on the border of North Yorkshire and County Durham. If you look at multimap the post code is DL2 2TF.
- Volunteers participating in this workcamp are expected to pay upon arrival a participation fee of £80 (GBP) towards VAP. VAP charges this fee as without it we would be virtually unable to organise any projects in the UK.
